Re: What comes in 5GB of CentOS?

I'm not sure what you have installed to take up 5GB of disk space - that sounds like you must've selected everything! I have two systems here running CentOS 6 and one has 1170 packages installed taking up 3.5GB and the other has 838 packages/2.5GB. Figures obtained by running `rpm -qa | wc -l` and `df -m`. To find out about packages that are installed and available you can use commands like
yum list firefox\*
yum search firefox
yum install firefox
yum remove firefox
The last one is well worth stopping and reading the output from before you reply Y to it as yum has a habit of expanding the package list to be removed and can sometimes go crazy and uninstall a bunch of critical packages.
